     John J. Phelan was born on 7 April 1882 at Waterbury, Connecticut. The physician was E. W. McDonald.12,13,3
     John J. Phelan appears as John Phelan, age 17, in the census of 15 June 1900 at 398 Baldwin Street (rear), Waterbury, Connecticut,in the household of John J. Phelan as his son.2 John J. Phelan resided there with his parents and siblings: Dennis, Mary, Sarah, William, Daniel, Joseph, and George.14   and worked in the buckle shop in Waterbury.2,8 He resided in 1912 at 332 Baldwin Street with his mother, Mary, his uncle Daniel, and his brothers William and Dennis.15 He resided in 1917 at 332 Baldwin Street with his mother, Mary. His brothers George and Dennis were also listed in the directory along with his great uncle, Daniel Phelan.16 He was a hoseman in 1917 at Waterbury, Connecticut.16
     With no end in sight for World War I, the United States instituted its third and final registration. It included all men who were between the ages of 18 and 21, and 31 to 45 years of age. This added younger men than the previous registration, those who were born between September 12, 1897 and September 12, 1900; and added an older group of men, born between September 12, 1873 and September 12, 1888. John J. Phelan filled out a draft card on 12 September 1918 at Waterbury, Connecticut, He was of medium height, slender build, blue eyes and black hair.17    He resided in September 1918 at 332 Baldwin Street with his mother, Mary.18
     His WWI Draft Registration Card, shows that he was a laborer at the Waterbury Button Company in September 1918 at South Main Street, Waterbury, Connecticut.18 He was a pallbearer for Daniel J. Bergin, his uncle, on 26 January 1920 at Waterbury, Connecticut.19
     John J. Phelan, age 38, appears as head of household in the census of 31 January 1920 in Waterbury, New Haven, Connecticut, with Dennis John Phelan; The original census taker wrote down incorrect names and ages of the occupants. But, from street directories and past census, I believe this is who was living here at that time.3    The Census of 31 January 1920 indicates that he was a machine hand in a brass shop.3 John J. Phelan resided in 1920 at 332 Baldwin Street with his siblings: Dennis, George, William and Sadie. His uncle Daniel was also living in the household. Sarah's two sons were likely there as well but were not shown on the street directory. Children under 18 were not included in the directory with Daniel Phelan, Dennis John Phelan, George Vincent Phelan, William F. Phelan, Sarah A. Phelan, George Christopher Reilly and William F. Rielly.20 John was employed by S & J Mfg. Co. in 1920 at Waterbury according to the Waterbury Street Directory.21
     Sometime after 1920, he was hired by the City of Waterbury to work in the Street Department. That was his employment written on his death certificate.4 According to Ralph Phelan, his nephew, John's nickname was Shorty. Ralph never met his uncle. His WWI Draft Card lists him as being medium height, so it is puzzling where the name came from.8,18 He was a member of the Eagles Club.6 He remained single.8,4 As of 1924, the address of John J. Phelan was 71 East Clay Street, Waterbury, Connecticut. One obituary said that his address was Clay Street and that he died at his boarding house. The other one said that he died at the home of his sister Sadie on South View.8,6   
     John J. Phelan died on 14 November 1924 at St. Mary's Hospital, Waterbury, Connecticut, at age 42 from alcoholic overstimulation. His sister, Sarah, was an informant to his death.4,5,22   

     John was buried in November 1924 at Old St. Joseph's Cemetery, Waterbury, Connecticut.4,23
